I've been on a mission to work on my Pinterest marketing. It's one of my biggest referrers to my blog, yet I usually spend the least amount of time on it. That's silly, right? Anyway, since I've been over there, pinning away, I decided that maybe I should start actually DOING some of the tutorials I pin. Maybe even actually COOK some of the recipes. Innovative, right? To keep myself accountable, I will share my results when I actually use Pinterest ideas in REAL LIFE!
My first real life experiment was to make DIY Dryer Sheets-tutorial by View from the Fridge from my Homemade Cleaners pinboard. I don't use fabric softener or dryer sheets. They are made for the environment and bad for my machine. I was using wool balls in my dryer, which worked well, but I was kind of intrigued by the dryer sheet idea. It totally works! My laundry came out soft and had a faint, natural, lavender smell (the essential oil I used). It was easy to make too. Since I regularly use vinegar and essential oils to clean, I already had everything I needed. Right now, I'm combining the wool balls and the dryer sheet method. I like that the balls help my laundry dry faster and I like the way the dryer sheets actually make my clothes softer. Try it! You'll like it.
